CentOS is short for Community Enterprise Operating System. This is one of the best Linux distributions for servers and it's regarded as one of the most stable and secure Operating Systems out there. CentOS is open-source software, which means that you're able to customize it in any way you see fit, adding and removing packages or altering the code of any of them. It's also free to distribute and use, so you won't need to pay any license fees, which means that the total price that you will have to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server working with some other OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer community, which will help you discover the answer to any kind of question or problem you have. Furthermore, each version which is released officially is supported for a decade, which is much longer than with any other OS. This means frequent safety and stability updates which provides a great software setting for your web apps in the long run.
CentOS in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need a dedicated server with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans that we offer, since this OS is on the list of options that you'll be able to pick through the order process. As the software that you wish to run may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit releases of CentOS. CentOS works with different web hosting Control Panels, so if you get a dedicated server with our Hepsia Control Panel, you're able to manage the server like you're managing one large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have different accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add our Managed Services upgrade, we will also perform OS upgrades on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is protected and it has the most recent software at all times, so as to ensure the best performance for your sites.
